What's 'Moo' with You???

I just finished the card above for a summer swap. I'm pretty limited on summer themed stamps, and since this is a TAC swap that I was invited to play in, I chose these stamps! The 'waves' are just a little DP from TAC's Gentle Blessings set, I stippled a bit of blue for sky, and the rest is just stamped and colored! The innertube is colored with hot pink Gelly Roll glitter pen, and the dots on the tube and on the wave are done with a blue glitter pen. CAS for sure! Hope you like it!
I have some news! I had posted a while back on my sidebar about Anna's big give-a-way. Well...she posted the winner a while ago, and it was me!!! So just think - I won't HAVE to clean and scrub and dust when I start being retired, because I have new toys to play with!!! Anna's blog is wonderful, so be sure to drop by and visit her now and then!
Hope your Sunday is relaxing and quiet - it's only supposed to get to 86 or so today, the humidity is supposed to drop a bit, and there is a breeze!!! I'm off to water our garden!
Have a great day!

Congratulations, girl! You are on a roll! Were there lots of good ones in that bag? How fun!

Cute card, by the way. I love the way you did the water and waves. And what cow wouldn't want to float around in an inner tube, especially cows that live out here in the sun belt and in TX. ha ha!
